SO or DH?

I thought it mean't the same SO (significant other) DH (dear husband).
What could be the difference? Because I really don't get it. I mean Significant other could be your husband too. Correct?

  • Yes your SO could also be your DH but SO doesn't necessarily mean married, just committed :)

  • No.. some people are really committed to a serious relationship but are not officially married.

  • I have an SO not a DH. We are not married but we are in a committed relationship and do live together as if we are married. We aren't in any rush to get married.

  • I have a DH not an SO. I always see SO as people who live together or are committed but not married. I see DH and know the person is married.

  • When I post a question I always say SO to encompass everyone on this site. Your DH is also your SO, but so is a BF, GF, etc.

  • Their are a lot of people in committed relationship that are not married. So if I see a SO, I automatically think your not married. Because if your married why not put DH. Just like BF, if I see that, I think your just dating or seeing the guy, not in a committed relationship.  That's the way I see it

  • some people use SO to generalize the question or post to anyone that will read it. it CAN mean both but doesn't always. I use DH when talking about myself and SO when its a general question about any woman's partner.

  • SO usually does mean your "husband" but it can also mean your partner you are in a commited relationship with.... But here on CAFEMOM we usually use SO as just your commited partner and DH for your husband thats how we relate between the 2 I think!!
